 4  pcos and ttc The first day on provera I was very emotional. The second day I actually started my period but kept taking them for the full 10 days. The only side effects I had were headaches, insomnia, cramping, severe nausea and lower back pain. This pill is definitely not as horrible as everyone makes it out to be. Obviously yes there are some side effects however, if you have pcos and trying to conceive. 1-6 months on this pill + clomid and there is a great chance of you having your child you have been trying so hard to conceive. Well worth the little bit of pain and suffering :) F 22 10 days

 4  To induce my period I didnt have major or too many side effects, I did feel slight mild cramps, felt emotional and I used to get irritated fast. Other than that no other side effect. I was taking the pills at night time this way I wouldnt feel anything while I was sleeping. This is my second time I took Provera in the last year and a half for the same reason; to induce menstruation. When I took it last year it was because my period was missing for a month and a half. This year, the last time I had my period was on 4/20. I went 3 months without getting it. I was frustrated. I was trying everything from home remedies to natural herbs and nothing was bringing my flow, so I went to doctor and got Provera. I took Provera from 7/23 till 8/1. Last year when I took provera I got my period 9 days after the last pill, this time around I started spotting 6 days after last pill (8/7) and had a normal flow from 8/8 till 8/13. I am greatful this pill did its purpose with no big side effects since I am trying to conceive. F 36 10 days

 3  Spotting for 4+ months Consistent spotting over 4 months, so my doc put me on provera to "organize everything and reset." I took it twice a day for 5 days and was told that I would have a period after the I finished the meds. My last dose was on Aug 4 and my period started the next day. I am still bleeding to death...now on day 8 of the worst period of my life. It is very heavy and clotty and the cramps are horrible. I'm beyond ready for normalcy. Good grief! F 30 10 days

 4  To induce period Hot flashes some days, lasting 1-3 hours after taking the pill, one day headache, vivid dreams It was not bad at all. I was expecting strong headaches as I usualy react strongly to hormonal changes, but only one day headache. Period on 4th day after last pill; 3 havier days, 2 light - all very normal. No cramps. No mood swings. HiDef dreams I consider to be an interesting bonus :) I was taking my dose in the afternoon after work so I could deal with the hot flashes at the comfort of my home, as they occurred within an hour of taking the pill and would last about 2 hrs. F 35 10 days

 4  Induce period Headache, weird dreams, INSOMNIA I got a headache after the first dose on day 1 and it lasted through day 3...not a bad one, but bad enough I had to put up my black-out curtains and spend a few hours in bed. And then the weird dreams started and lasted until day 8...And insomnia had been there since day 1. Every day I took it, I slept less and less...I was also taking it with Metformin (1000mg) and had loose stool for the first week and rumbling stomach all the time...no cramping, though, and no weird pains. Feel pretty normal taking the Provera F 19 10 days

 1  To induce menstration Period-like cramps, some light brown spotting, no period, bizarre dreams and hot flashes. I was put on Provera because I hadn't had a period in two months after two months of normal cycles (post miscarriage in March). I was first put on natural progesterone. I had an allergic reaction to the natural progesterone (even though I do not have a nut allergy). My doctor put me on the synthetic progesterone to hopefully induce a period, but nothing. All I have is some light brown spotting and period-like cramps after taking my last pill 5 days ago. I've never wanted my period so much in my life...well at least second to after I had a miscarriage. F 33 7 days

 5  Bleeding heavily for months I bled more heavily than I had before. Changing tampons and pads almost every 45 minutes. Huge clots. Sometimes had to step quickly into tub to keep from bleeding on the floor; the blood would stream out of me like a faucet. Had extreme mood swings and sense of doom. When I quit taking it, my bleeding seemed to be worse. The stuff the OB/GYN prescribed to stop the bleed seemed to make it worse! When I called the nurse, all she said was I should have taken it the whole 10 days as prescribed. She really didnít give me any reason why this was happening to me or what she thought the outcome was going to be. A couple more days after discontinuing, I called the nurse again. She implied that she expected my bleeding to stop after five days. Sure enough it did. I have not taken the medication since then. I think I am going through menopause. Had some hot flashes and sleep disturbance, but started using a little progesterone cream and I Cool, and avoiding sweets. Now Iím sleeping better and the hot flashes are milder. If I go another 8 months without bleeding, I'll know I have passed through menopause. I feel good, mainly because I'm not bleeding my guts out!!! I think having more sunshine in the summer helped me to feel better too - just a theory based on what I've read about vitamin D. I just wanted to come on this site and give a good report because I read a lot of reviews where other women my age were having the same heavy bleeding. I thought I would just say there is light at the end of the tunnel. I don't appreciate how doctors don't inform patients what might happen. Maybe they just don't know. F 50 8 days

 4  Induce a period hot flashes, very vivid and weird dreams, light headaches, a little moody. This is my 2nd time taking Provera and I'm on day 4. I'm having small hotflashes and crazy vivid dreams. The last time I used provera I took the same amount 10mg for 10days and started my period 3 days later and it was a very heavy nasty period that lasted 12 days (the last 2 days were mild spotting). Not to be gross but I had to wear both a tampon and a pad at the same time b/c it was so heavy. I'm dreading going through that again but my body needs it b/c I dont ovulate regularly. F 27 10 days
